On Episode 152 of the Mama Bear Dares Podcast, Tesi and Leslie sit down to talk about motherhood, overcoming challenges, and teen pregnancy with Reina Glandon. Reina generously shares her story of learning she was pregnant as a junior in high school and becoming a mom to a beautiful baby girl at the age of 16. With a supportive network of family and friends, Reina graduated high school and is in nursing school, beating the odds of teen moms. Reina is funny, matter-of-fact, highly aware of the world she wants her daughter to grow up in. The three women learn from one another and discover firsthand how unexpected challenges can become unexpected blessings when the Mama Bear is engaged.
